a note of caution. the same spirit of cooperation and focus that has gotten us to this point with one will be an overwhelming vote i hope is unanimous. we need to keep going so that this isn't a casualty of the back and forth process in the house and senate. the senate played a large role in giving it in the first place. we need to make sure that it is not caught up in the larger dramas that occur around here that we can keep our eye on the ball and fix it. and i do want to say just one brief word about the pay for. it is illusory because it would cost far more than we would ever collect but we have to deal with the rules as they are. there are two proposals. one would tighten eligibility for the health care reform. the other would take away some unnecessary tax benefits to large oil companies that long ago ceased to have any impact on oil exploration or reducing price. but while i actually think the pay for from our side of the aisle dealing with the oil tax adjustment is superior, i think it is a practical matter. we are going to have to do both of these in the months ahead if we ar

that did so much for this country, let us draw strength from those earlier struggles. first and foremost, let us remember that change has never been quick. change has never been simple or with without controversy. change depends on persistenceç. change requires determination. it took a full decade before the moral guidance of brown vs. board of education was translated ininto enforcement measures of the civil rights act and the voting rights act. those 10 long years did not lead dr. king to give up. he kept pushing, speaking, marching, until change finally came. [ applause ] >> the president: and then when even after the civil rights act and the voting rights act passed, african-americans still found themselves trapped in pockets ofç poverty across the country. dr. king didn't say those laws were a failure. he didn't say this is too hard. he didn't say let's settle for what we got and go home. instead, he said, let's take those victories and broaden our mission to achieve not just civil and political equality, but also economic justice. let's fight for a living wage and better school
. that was always the plan in theory. though the actual reasons it is happening is that iraq refused to give u.s. soldiers legal immunity for the reactions if they remain. a war that deeply divided the u.s., sold to us on lies couched in the fears of another 9/11. it is estimated to have cost is at least 799,948,099 so far not counting the interest we will have to pay on it. at least 4,477 died and tens of thousands more were wounded. 150,000 iraqis are estimated to have died in the war, 12, 00 of them civilians. 650,000 war-related deaths. joining us p.j. crowley, former assistant secretary of state for public affairs, under president obama. a 26-year-old veteran of the air force, the omar bradley chair and strategic leadership at dickinson college, penn state law and thank you for joining us. >> good morning, chris. >> given the costs of the war that i just reeled off. this is the iconic example of the government doing something unjust and being unable to stop it it and watching in horror as it unfolded, what was your reaction yesterday to the announcement from president obama that this was fi
dan rivers is in tripoli for us. dan, we're about to show our viewers of video of a bloody moammar gadhafi after the capture while he's still alive. what do you know about gadhafi's final moments? >> reporter: well, this video does shed some light on it. it's tough to watch. but i think it's important to have a look at this. you can clearly see that gadhafi is alive when you look at this footage. he is being led away. he looks like he's got a lot of blood on his face. but he is clearly alive. at this point. it seems then that at some point between this video being taken and a subsequent video being taken that he clearly died. now, whether he died of his injuries he sustained when shot, some sources have us believe or whether he was literally beaten to death by this mob of ntc troops sort of pistol whipped to death, we don't know. but clearly here, he seems alive. you get a real visceral sense from this footage of just how roughly he was handled here. naturally perhaps one can imagine that the passion is running so high, but also, i have to stop for that shooting there. but also a s

their currency and korea is one of only three nations on earth identified as a currency manipulators by our own u.s. terror treasury. does this adeprement preclude currency manipulation? it does not. they remake their val added taxes to all their exports. build a car in korea, don't pay taxes in korea. build a car in the u.s., we cant rebate the taxes under thescurrent laws and when the u.s. car gets to the border of korea, they pay a 10% tax. we'll export autos to korea if they're 20% cheaper than those produced by cheaper labor in koa, not very likely. but let's sa we could. if you buy a u.s. car and you're a korean citizen, they'll audit your taxes. most employers do not allow owners offord automobiles, which are mostly luxury automobiles over there, there are very few foreign automobiles, to have parking spaces at work. and korea does not buy very many cars. they have a 65% mix, 65% of the cars they produce are exported. this is not about u.s. exports to korea. it's a platform for them to send us stuff here. that's cheaper and displace american jobs. even the u.s. international trade council, t
perspectives. many of us believe we have different interests. it is also quite clear that neither russia nor the united states quite controls the situation. we have a number of countries in the region who dare to have their own interests and act on the basis of what they believe are their interests. those in moscow and washington are not just acting. there also reacting. they're not just creating situations. they are managing situations. it is difficult. it is controversial. so is likely to become more do after this weekend's events in moscow. i am talking about president putin deciding he will be coming back to power. those of us who have watched the remarkable united russian congress and those of us who were back in moscow during the days of communism felt it was all very well orchestrated. it looked quite impressive. during the, the minister -- during the communist party congresses, they would at least proceed with a vote and elect their candidates. this time, i have to give them credit, they were quite efficient and did not want to waste any time. prime minister putin came to the podium
of america that built this great country. ronald reagan, one of our greatest presidents, used to describe this nation as that shining city on a hill. but in the last several years, that shining city on a hill has slid down to the side of the hill because of the struggling economy because this administration is weakening our military. because of foggy foreign policy around the world and because of a severe deficiency of leadership, i believe that the american people are saying loud and clear, that they want to move this shining city on the hill back to the top of the hill where it belongs. and i believe that we can do that in november of 2012. [ applause ] there are two things that some people having figured out yet. some are still trying to answer the question, why is herman cain doing so well in the polls? he doesn't have the greatest amount of money. a lot of people didn't even know who he was. i can tell you what's happening that they don't get yet. number one, the voice of the people is more powerful than the voice of the media. you are the people and you are listening.

that crosses our desk on a daily basis that teaches us really what we are -- adversaries may be are thinking about. technologies or other capacities they really do have and what do we need to do to and large or maximize our ability to prevent something from occurring and our ability to respond and recover as quickly as possible. those things are happening simultaneously. lastly -- the department of homeland security has been the largest reorganization of the federal government since the creation of the department of defense. it has been immense. it is not until you are in it that you realize how our immense it actually is. as that reorganization has occurred it impacts other participants in the so-called interagency because for example the department of homeland security has a huge international footprint and we are negotiating international agreements all the time and we have people stationed in 75 countries around the world today. that culture which is relatively post 9/11 where ministers of the interior, homeland security secretary have their own international pathways to communicate and

at home for joining us this week. one story list week almost made it into the best new thing in the world today but got cut at the last minute because something better came along. a story about an arkansas high school marching band turning up at the house of one of their player's grandmothers because grandmother was too ill to go to the game. i still love that story. go, rogers heritage high school. what roger heritage high school of arkansas pushed out of the best new thing in the world segment that day, what got cut from the marching band segment, is what mediaite highlighted as when horrible people unite. when the president of iran spoke at the united nations last week the main news he made, of course, is that everybody walked out on him again like they pretty much always do now whenever he speaks in public. quoting from "the guardian" newspaper reporting on the walkout, u.s. diplomats were first to leave when ahmadinejad referred to the mysterious september 11th incident as a pretext to attack afghanistan and iraq. the mysterious september 11th incident. good-bye, mahmoud. see you lat

currency bill. when it was discussed that these bills would be brought to the floor, many of us said we shouldn't even be considering these bills. 6,000 for colombia, perhaps 70,000 for korea, maybe 1,000 for panama. 77,000 jobs, that's significant. if in fact those numbers really bear out. let's assume they do for a moment. we are making a big deal out of 77,000 jobs which are a big deal, but how much bigger a deal is it to say we are ignoring the fact that we are losing over one million jobs per year because of the china man national park plays of their currency? the distinguished speaker has said if we push this bill, we will start a trade war with china. my, have i heard that song before. many of us have been fighting for a better relationship with china in terms of our trade relationship, and for at least two decades we have been fighting for opening of our markets to china to stop the piracy of our intellectual property, the list goes on. but this manipulation of currency, ok, the speaker says we are going to start a trade war, 20 years ago when we started this debate following ti

here in the region, we've seen a deterioration in the relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia, a chilling effect going on, because the saudis saw the u.s. as supporting the revolutionary movement in egypt and they don't like revolutionary movements going on in this region. >> we will wait and see. thank you very much. >>> thank you very much. we will continue -- wolf blitzer will continue this coverage, very serious story with clearly international implications, "the situation room with wolf blitzer" starts right now. >> brooke, thanks very much. >>> happening now, breaking news. an alleged iranian plot to assassinate the saudi ambassador to the united states. two men now charged. one is due in court this hour. >>> we're also following reaction this hour from tehran to riyadh to the white house and beyond. our correspondents around the world are standing by. and the united states is vowing to hold inner accountable, but how? we're working all angles of this major breaking news story right now. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." we're also awaiting a state
in 24 countries. we use that also with the department of defense for guidance and advice and coordination. in this context as well if you have the state department helping to do diplomatic coordination or doing also assistance as far as money-wise to provide logistical support and, of course, the dod is providing the actual individuals to do some training and equipping, so those are issues that were kind of a model for this area, but also we're looking at other areas in parts of africa. >> thank you very much. >> thank you, madam chair, i yield back. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. ambassador, i read your report, and i'm a little confused in it. at one point on age 4, you refer this is nothing more than that what we already do with the afr africno thin we have place in africa, and i studied it, and unless i'm wrong, it's an educational thing we use to help african nations to develop a more professional military. we do building of schools and hospitals on the ground, but you add in the report the reason we had to go, the president had to go to congress is because the
that this administration does not want to use the terms radical islam about the people who are radical islamists. and when you get to digging a little deeper, you find out that the o.i.c., islamic group, figured out that we need to go on the attack and start calling anybody who mentions radical islam as an islamaphobe. and if you give universities, great universities, proud heritage in this country, massive amounts of money, you can also get them to teach seminars on this. you can get them to teach courses on this. and you can paint the picture that anybody, no matter how open-minded, no matter how well red and studied theyr you call them islamapho bmp es and maybe it will catch on and call radical islamists what they are. i don't know anybody that was in judiciary today that believes that muslims are terrorists. they're not. the only disagreement among those i know concerned about radical islam is whether the radical islamists, 1%, 5%, maybe a little more, some might say as much as 10%, but at least 90%, maybe 99% of muslim are peace-loving people. and if you have a muslim friend, they are your true frie
editor. thank you both for joining us. let's replay what we know at this point to be reported. a lot of this gun battle happened in sirt. we know the rebels focused long on that part of libya and now it is reported the body of gadhafi, his son and one official. >> i have been speaking to the rebel standers and the details will emerge in the coming hours. there is particularly two brigades involved in this attack and it took place as we understand it in an animal feed factory in the southwestern part of the city of sirt. they noticed suspicious activity and reports of them trying to leave sirt. they engaged these armed men and they didn't know gadhafi could have been in the building or in the vicinity. >> they no idea gadhafi was with that group. >> right. it has been under somewhat of a siege with the rebels. they were prepared that somebody cab trying to escape. that's what they did. they engaged the people and at the end of the fight that lasted from 30 to 45 minutes. they had ka dafy in their hands. >> what are about the nato air strike that took place around the same time and tar
from the u.s. and maintained by ground crews in the warning. but some are warning they could become a little too handy. >> let me say one thing about drone strikes. i support them as a tool. but we have to be very careful how we use them. but we have to have a counter narrative, we have to live our values, we have to do other thing, diplomacy and development in the countries in order to persuade the next generation not to strap an suicide belt. >> and meantime a new travel alert in the wake of the death of anwar al-awlaki. they say the death of him could provide motivation for anti-american attacks worldwide from individuals or groups seek to go retaliate. americans traveling oversees are urged to register with the u.s. embassy in the country they are visiting. >> thanks very much. of course, the death of anwar al-awlaki has dealt a blow to al-qaeda. joining us former fbi agent. >> how big is this for the u.s. military? >> it's a big deal. he was clearly one of the key leaders in al-qaeda and there's only a certain amount of leaders. it's not an infinite pool. it hurts them. it send
with us. >> erin, it's wonderful to be with you. thank you. >> let me start with vice president biden this morning on abc. he was talking about the terror plot, he said it was an outrageous act and the iranians will have to be held accountable. if you were president, would military action be on the table? >> if i was president, i wouldn't have taken my eye off the number one issue in the middle east, which is iran obtaining nuclear weapons. the problem with the obama administration is they have put significant daylight between israel and the united states from day one of the obama presidency. the president unfortunately sent signals of weakness and focused on israel building apartments on their own land as opposed to iran obtaining a nuclear weapon. that's been the problem. when you have a nation that's a hostile nation, seeing the united states from a point of weakness, that can lead to actions that are absolutely heinous like we're seeing today. >> does it seem like there's a lot of confusion or uncertainty how high this goes in the iranian government, if it really goes to the top a
